Pleasant Hill’s award-winning Community Service Day is now in its second decade of making our community the best it can be. When we launched our first Community Service Day in 2005, I had great expectations that it would be embraced by our residents as a great way to give back and make our city an even better place to live, work, and raise a family. And that's exactly what’s happened!

Last year more than 1,000 volunteers worked on dozens of projects throughout our city. Over the past ten years, we - as a community - have donated over 40,000 volunteer hours to improve the place we call home. Together we have:

  • Cleaned up neighborhoods, schools, parks, creeks and churches
  • Planted scores of beautiful trees
  • Repaired over 1,000 bicycles for donation to children
  • Donated blood to save dozens of lives
  • Collected over 10 tons of food for the Contra Costa Food Bank
  • Helped children and seniors in need

We couldn’t have done any of this without you! You, and the thousands of others who volunteered their time and energy, help make Pleasant Hill safer, healthier, and more beautiful.  We have become a model of volunteer service that is the envy of other communities. Because of our groundbreaking effort, other cities have followed our lead.  

While we can be proud of our past accomplishments, there’s even more to do. So I invite you to be part of our 11th Annual Community Service Day on Saturday September 26, in Pleasant Hill Park.

Sign up to volunteer or register a worthwhile project of your own at the city’s website: www.pleasanthillca.org/csd. For more information, contact Martin Nelis at mnelis@pleasanthillca.org or 925-671-5229. Projects are available for adults and children of all ages and abilities. 

Be among the first 600 volunteers to register at Pleasant Hill Park on Saturday, September 26, at 7:30am, and you’ll receive a free pancake breakfast, courtesy of our Lions Club, and a free commemorative T-shirt. I hope you and your family will join your friends, neighbors, and our wonderful Civic Action Commission for this most worthwhile community event. Thank you!
